change, more diversity here in the united states? >> well, absolutely. lindsey graham, the republican senator from south carolina said his own party is doomed unless they realize that they just can't be a constituency of white males. 20 years ago the electorate, the turnout, was 90% white. it's now 74% and hispanics and african americans and asians have gravitated almost 90 or 80% to the democratic party and so politics is addition. it's not subtraction and it seems to me that if the rep party presents itself as a country club and doesn't allow everybody in, their political future is doomed. >> the other thing that seemed to doom the gop this time around were the social issues, women's rights to marriage equality. do you think they need to lean more to the middle? >> well, i would think that they don't want to talk about those issues and they have to realize that we're in 2012. we're not in 1956 and it is not ozzie and harriet and there are different formations of families and if they are as eliminating people or not allowing people to come in, it is definitely going to hurt their pot

objection. briefly, then i'll -- mr. graham: very briefly. here's the request of the body. benghazi needs to be investigated. we need to find out what happened so it never happens again. you have four americans killed, the first ambassador killed in the line of duty in 33 years. that's worthy of our time. dianne feinstein is doing a very good job with saxby chambliss on the intel side. general petraeus must testify. i think secretary clinton must testify. here's the problem that i have with the approach we're taking. armed services needs to ask d.o.d. how could you not come to the aid of the consolate for almost eight hours on september september, of a days? the state department needs to be asked, why did you deny additional security requests that had been made for months? and could you not see this coming? and the c.i.a. needs to be asked a lot o questions also. a select committee, where you have members of intel, foreign relations and armed services, listening to all three agencies explain themselves i think is essential to get to the truth. i will not know what general petraeus says in

graham from south carolina has been talking a lot about the shape of the republican party going forward. particularly after this election. i'll just throw up some numbers here while i'm on this subject. among latino voters, president obama won 71% of the latino vote. mitt romney, just 27%. with african-americans, it was more of a blowout, 93% for the president, 6% for mitt romney. last night with anderson, lindsey graham, the senator from north carolina, was sort of talking about this situation pp. let's listen. >> i think most hispanic voters, they didn't have a real fondness for president obama. i think they saw him a lesser of two evils between obama and us, because he didn't really lift a finger to do comprehensive immigration reform, like he promised. so we'll be back in the game. immigration is a national issue, it's just not an hispanic issue, it's an american issue, and there's a solution to be found out there if people want to find it. >> is it as simple as he says, lenny? will you get back in the game that easily? >> i think when it comes to our principles, when it comes to th

graham talked about it last night when he was chatting with anderson cooper. here is what he said. >> i just think the honest truth is that we have a demographic problem. had we gotten 40% of the hispanic vote, mitt romney would be president. mccain got 39%, bush 41 got 41%. we're going in the wrong direction. >> the mayor of san antonio texas, julio castro, thank you for joining us. i was speaking with kay bailey hutchison. she believes ideologic aally that latinos may be sort of linked to republicans than democrats, that maybe some of these issues around immigration is what's keeping latinos from becoming republicans. do you think that's true? >> well, i think that latinos are like every other community in the united states. they have the same concerns. and those concerns are several. and i know that senator hutchison, of course, is very familiar with the latino community, representing texas. i would say, though, that it's the tone on issues like immigration but also the substance, the policies that republicans have embrace d on health care, on education, on the economy. on health car
